Philippe Coutinho is “really looking forward to his first champions league semi finals” which happens to be against his former employers ‘Liverpool’ who have seemingly grown to a formidable force since his exit.

Barcelona welcome the Merseyside reds to the Camp Nou for the first leg, and then visit the Anfield for the second. Philippe Coutinho admits ‘returning to Anfield will be special’, but has only one goal in mind, – The Champions League.

“I am really looking forward to playing in my first Champions Leagues final, and I want to do a good job,” Coutinho said.

“Returning to Anfield will be very special, because I was very happy at Liverpool.

“The Champions league is our big objective and we have to have a strong mentality for these types of games.

“Liverpool are a side with a very strong mentality, above all at home. They area great side in attack and defence, so we will have to be alert.

“They aren’t only about a strong attack. They have a great side and Anfield has a magnificent atmosphere.”

Alongside Philippe Coutinho, teammate Luis Suarez will also be returning to his former side, and the Uruguayan striker has already revealed he would hold back no ounce of celebration when he faces Liverpool.
